Like many jobs in the technology field, Data Scientist roles can often be done remotely—but this is ultimately dependent upon the company you work for and the kind of work you do.

When Can Data Scientists Work Remotely?

Data science positions that work with highly sensitive or confidential data and information (which includes a large number of them, even outside privacy-heavy fields like banking and healthcare, as proprietary data can be one of a large company’s most valuable assets) will find they face many more restrictions with regards to remote work. In these cases, it’s likely you will be required to work in-office during working hours.

Some other factors to consider:

  • How traditional your company is. Larger, older companies are not typically as remote-friendly—although the events of 2020 may bring big changes in this area.
  • How easily you can work with other teammates and departments remotely. If your work is highly collaborative, it’s more likely you’ll be required to show up in person.
  • Data Scientists working on contract—or even on a consulting basis—may also have more flexibility to choose their own location.
